Masters ramblings

By now the tournament is in full force and we'll spend much of the morning following Steven Fox, so play nice.

On Fox, we spent some time with he and his family last night before he headed to the famed Crow's Nest, and the kid was as calm as an October lake morning. What an adventure huh?

He's playing with Bubba and Ian Poulter today and tomorrow. Cool stuff.

Braves magic

The legend of Oso Blanco only grows. Evan Gattis, the Braves catcher and cleanup hitter who was out of baseball for four years, is hitting .391 and hit his third homer of the season in last night's 8-0 drubbing of the Marlins.

Amazing indeed.

The artist formerly known as Jason Heyward is hitting a less than stellar .071.

Go figure huh?

This and that

• Loved a few of the suggestions for the name of the two-week radio adventure TFP football ace David Paschall and the goofballTFP sports editor will try starting Monday on ESPN 105.1 here in town.

• Kobe scored 47 as the Lakers stayed in the playoff hunt. If LA makes it in -- it holds a scant edge with a few games left -- the Lakers would be the most dangerous 8 seed of all-time.

• As our ace columnist Mark Wiedmer shared this morningg, Shaq was in Chattanooga Wednesday. Shaq is a cool cucumber you know?

• NFL draft names moving and shaking -- we love the draft; you know this. There's no way we spend a first-rounder on any QB on this board. Also, as all-around ace David Paschall shared, Mel Kiper Jr has Da'Rick Rogers in Round 4. If David Ricky Rogers is still on the board going into the Saturday of the draft, we'd move pieces to have that first pick. Kid can play.

• side note: The 'g' key on our keyboard is sticking so if you see a randon 'g' well now you know.

• Want to know a side story about the glorious, high-dollar newspaper travel? Here's what happened this morning at the America's Best Inn parking log -- Uch is outside smoking, and a Richmond County sheriff pulls through the parking lot and says, "If you see a black male in a yellowT-shirt call 911." Ocuh-standing

Today's question

Don't forget Friday's mailbag. And yes we know that is not a question.

We thought about asking something poetic or magical about Augusta, but that's not our style.
